Suffolk Zone Honorees

Rocky Point High School seniors Shannon McGreevy and CJ Perrino were named 2015 NYSAHPERD Suffolk Zone award winners.

The pair was honored for being the top female and male senior physical education leaders in their school during the association’s annual awards dinner. The award criterion considered students’ leadership in physical education, scholarship, character and being a role model to their peers.

The winners were asked to briefly explain what physical education has taught them. CJ noted, “Physical Education has taught me that the best way to lead a group of people is by example.” Shannon commented, “Physical education has taught me how important it is to always include everyone.  The class is special because it does what no other class can do--it brings students together who wouldn’t normally interact and puts us in the position to make each other better.”
